.SHORT TERM...(THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY)
ISSUED AT 250 PM MDT TUE OCT 14 2014

CURRENTLY...UPPER RIDGE REMAINS FIRMLY IN PLACE OVER THE DESERT
SW...PROVIDING FOR SUNNY SKIES ACROSS THE STATE. AFTER A COLD
START...TEMPS HAVE WARMED INTO THE 60S AND 70S FOR THE ARKANSAS
RIVER VALLEY AND EASTERN PLAINS...AND INTO THE 40S AND 50S FOR THE
SLV AND MTS.

TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY...THE RIDGE AXIS SLIDES TO THE EAST ACROSS THE
STATE TONIGHT...THEN SW FLOW INCREASES ACROSS THE 4 CORNERS AS THE
NEXT DISTURBANCE DROPS DOWN INTO THE PACIFIC NW. TEMPS AT 700 AND
850 MB ARE FORECAST TO WARM OVER THE NEXT 24 HRS...SO CLEAR SKIES
TONIGHT WITH ISOLATED FROST IF ANY AT ALL. TOMORROW PLENTY OF SUN IS
EXPECTED THOUGH HIGH CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE INCREASE FROM THE WEST.

.LONG TERM...(WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY)
ISSUED AT 250 PM MDT TUE OCT 14 2014

WEATHER DURING THIS PD WILL BE RATHER TRANQUIL. NO MAJOR WEATHER
SYSTEMS ARE FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS THE REGION SO I ANTICIPATE IT
WILL BE DRY FOR THE MOST PART. OVERALL MAX TEMPS WILL BE IN THE 70S
THROUGH THE PERIOD ON THE PLAINS...AND 60S VALLEYS.

BY LATE IN THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK...A BIT MORE MOISTURE
WILL MOVE OVER THE REGION FROM THE SOUTHWEST. THIS WILL BRING A
SLIGHTLY BETTER CHANCE OF SOME LIGHT SHOWERS TO THE
REGION...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE SW MTNS. THE OVERALL BEST
(SLIGHT) CHANCE OF SHOWERS WILL BE ON SUNDAY. /HODANISH
